For today’s people, especially the leisure time outside the working time, full, happy, satisfying, rest at the same time, having fun and learning activities is important in reducing stress. The meaning of recreation is the vitality and renewal of human beings both in terms of bodily and spiritual. One of the recreational activities known since the first ages is the close monitoring of aquatic life. Aquatic life presents a relaxing visuality and information about itself to human beings. It is obvious that aquariums will be a versatile decoration tool for living spaces as well as restful effects when considering the above reasons and will also affect the quality of life positively by reducing stress. The lack of nature and nature history museums in our cities may be seen as a suitable motivation for the dissemination of the aquatic life-based recreation of the decrease in the possibility of healthy contacts that should be found between man and nature. Aquariums that will be installed in shopping centers, schools, and other living areas in contemporary cities today, especially in residential buildings, will allow people to contact nature from another perspective. The recreational areas where the aquatic life is observed will give people the opportunity to relax in the natural life.
